Invalid optin campaign ID

Blexit founder Candace Owens heavily criticized the Democrats’ recen “photo op,” claiming they will stop at “nothing” in order to receive the “black vote.”

“I have to say— I thought there was at least one or two things that the Democrats wouldn’t stoop to for the black vote, but there is a apparently nothing,” Owens mocked. “Dressing in African garb and getting on their knees for a photo op because it’s Monday, & only 4 months to November.”

Prominent House and Senate Democrats took a knee in protest to show solidarity with ‘Black Lives Matter’ and they announced police reforms in a bill dubbed the “Justice in Policing Act,” the Daily Wire reported. They kneeled for about eight minutes and 46 seconds, according to reports.

Democrats reportedly wore African kente cloth scarfs, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and former presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

More from The Daily Wire:

Owens has been a vocal critic of the media narrative surrounding Floyd’s death. Last week, the conservative commentator released an explosive video explaining why she does “not support George Floyd and the media depiction of him as a martyr for black America.”

The Daily Wire reported: “During her at-times impassioned video post, Owens, who is African-American, criticizes what she describes as the African-American community ‘cater[ing] to the bottom denominator of our society’ by ‘demand[ing] support and justice for the people in our community that are up to no good.’ The holding up of Floyd as a ‘martyr for black America,’ she suggests, is an example of this trend that she forcefully rejects.”

During the kneeling event, House Speaker Pelosi was sure to speak.

“The martyrdom of George Floyd gave the American experience a moment of national anguish as we grieve for the black Americans killed by police brutality today,” she said.

“This moment of national anguish is being transformed into a movement of national action as Americans from across the country peacefully protest to demand an end to injustice,” Pelosi added. “Today, with the justice and policing at the Congress is standing with those fighting for justice and taking action.”

As noted by The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti, the unveiling of the “Justice in Policing Act” “marked the first time that House and Senate legislators have met together in months since the start of a coronavirus-related lockdown which kept Congressional legislators working from home.”
